Welcome to Day Two of Rainforest World Music Festival 2013 (RWMF2013) - this is entry is my experience be in this festival. Most photos in this entry will be credit to Sarawak Tourism Board unless stated otherwise.

By 10:30am, I had already arrived at the media center to get my daily pass into Sarawak Cultural Village and also I took the opportunity to transfer data from the memory card to the camera pendrive and to have a cup of hot coffee and even update a bit my blog.

Around 1pm, i'm make my move to Bayridge Cafe at Damai Central for lunch break and once i'm done then i proceed to Sarawak Cultural Village for some workshops.

The first workshop i'm looking forward to attend is called Call Of The Ceili :
Location : Dewan Lagenda
Time : 2pm - 2:45pm

This is an interactive Irish Dance lead by Rossa O Snodaigh (KILA). They teach us few steps that leads to many and in the end I think I've lost a lot of fat because this dance. (*≧▽≦)ノシ))

A Ceili (Read : Kay-Lee) is a traditional Gaelic social gathering, which usually involves playing Gaelic folk music and dancing.

Ceili dance may be performed with as few as two people and as many as sixteen. Ceili dances may also be danced with an unlimited number of couples in a long line or proceeding around in a circle and often fast and complex.

This dance is best facilitated for ice breaking, courting and prospects of marriage for young people, back in yesteryears. Cool eh...? 

By the way, this dance is called Haymakers' Jig.

Its really fun.. as expected!! If you want to know more about the step of this dance.. please watch this video below.

Right after that, heading down back to the theatre for next workshop,

( ゚∀゚)o彡゚Mohsen Sharifian and The Lian Band - Ney-anban

( ゚∀゚)o彡゚Anton Smirnov (Spiritual Seasons) - Bagpipes

( ゚∀゚)o彡゚Aaron Martin (Nunukul Yuggera) - Didgeridoo

( ゚∀゚)o彡゚Rasmus Fribo (Habadekuk) - Saxophone

Special accompanist on keyboard is Mr Theis Langlands (Habadekuk)

I find it very fascinating. Its not easy to do it especially the Didgeridoo (Australian Aboriginal instrument).

The Art Of War
Location : Dewan Lagenda
Time : 4pm - 4:45pm

This is superb because visitors have their chance to see and experience on how the Australians (Nunukul Yuggera ) and the Africans (Ibuyambo Ensemble) challenge each other to a war dance duel.

The referees are Soren Lund from Habedekuk and Edgar Arboleda Campos from Rey Vallenato Beto Jamaica while another referee in the 'ring' is Thomas David from Pine Leaf Boys.

I manage to get a very good view and in the end join forces with the Australians to duel with the Africans.。゚(TヮT)゚。
Its so fun and all we have to do is chants "Ozzi Ozzi Ozzi" or reply the chants with "Oii.. Oii... Oii..."

The Africans drums beats is surely something you cant ignored. Really make you want to dance instead of war.

I am not sure who won, but I'm sure all are amused.

NTGravity : Looking forward for tonight....
